I have to sadly report that Godzilla vs. Kong has been pushed back yet again. Originally, the film was meant to be released in March of this year, but due to the later failing a drug test it was pushed to November. Well, the much hyped match between radioactive dinosaur and giant ape rescheduled yet again due to that darn monkey.
Yes, today director Adam Wingard revealed on his Instagram that Kong will be unable to compete for the anticipated match. Here’s the post:
You know I’m beginning to think that Kong FEARS Godzilla. It is the only logical answer as to why the ape continues to fumble around delaying this brawl for it all. I have to seriously question if Kong even wants to fight Godzilla at this point? I think we all know why the ape keeps fumbling around causing these delays, because deep down he knows what we all do: he can’t defeat Godzilla, who is the true KING.
Obviously, this truly is disappointing for Godzilla who again participated in the battle of Boston in last year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters like the tyrant lizard that he is. I think at this point Legendary Pictures should just go ahead, and declare Godzilla the winner, like we all know he should be in this bought.
More so, that if Kong is so unwilling to participate in this match, that a new challenger should take this supposed king’s spot. Now, I know this challenger I’m about to say is from another league entirely, but I think it’s well past time that Godzilla faced an opponent that would TRULY test his meddle unlike this ape who’ll probably invent new powers for himself to have like he did in their original 1962 brawl.
Yes, there is only one opponent who truly won’t disappoint us like Kong has done, and that is Gamera. Yes, I know like I said he’s in a totally different league than the two above. Yes, it is true he hasn’t had a fight since 2006. At this point the delays Kong is accumulating is just too much. Gamera on the other hand is really neat! Gamera is also filled with meat that Godzilla can eat! Shell! Teeth! Eyes! Flames! Claws! Breath! Scales! Fun!
Also let’s face it. Do we really want have to ask ourselves do we want to see a giant ape take on a radioactive dinosaur? Or do you want to see a radioactive dinosaur take on a radioactive turtle who can fly?
I think we all know the answer to this question. Sadly, it appears we’ll have to wait May 2021 for Godzilla vs. Kong.
